  1. How to remove history in address bar in Edge?


    .

    *Banghead Win 10 Pro build 18362. Having the worst time removing the 'history' of web addresses I have visited in edge. It has always been a thorn in my side, and why I used IE-11 all this time since installing 10 (and updated it). Many many pages in IE-11 no longer work as websites stopped supporting it. So many things already tried, and failed. Disabled cortana, disabled search suggestions, disabled history (all using Group Policy Editor), tried a few more things but cannot remember all of them as this has been going on since upgrading 7 Ultimate.. I want to be able to type an address in the address bar (ie ebay.com) BUT it lists a number of other addresses I was at and before I know it I hit enter (old habits) and I go wherever that page was. Why is this data 'saved' in edge, can I get that crapola removed so when I type in the address bar I can just hit enter, and go where I want to? Thanks for any suggestions, am at a total 'pull-my-limited-hair-out' place and being already couped up indoors (CoVid19) am about to blow all my gaskets.. *Banghead

  2. delete address bar history

    -

    Please do not ask this again as a new question.

    You cannot completely "turn off" the Address Bar drop-down list.

    This is the best you can do.

    1. Internet Options> Content> AutoComplete> Settings, uncheck Address Bar

    2. Access websites from File> Open or Ctrl+o. Don't type URLs into the Address Bar

    3. Create an InPrivate shortcut to IE and always use that shortcut to open IE.

    Create the shortcut to IE and use this as the Target...

    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -private

    4. Internet Options> Browsing History> check Delete browsing history on exit. Go to Settings and verify that History is checked and Preserve favorites website data is unchecked.

  3. Microsoft Edge Address Bar

    Hi Zach,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to open actual address of websites with short forms as you wish:

    • Open Microsoft Edge, click on More actions(...) at the right top corner.
    • Click on View advanced settings, under Search in the address bar with
      click on down arrow.
    • Choose <add new>, try to add the default website.
    Secondly, as opening pages in new tab is set by design, I suggest you to provide this as a feedback.

    Hope it helps. Feel free to contact us for further assistance, we will be happy to help you.
